In Case You Missed It: Reporter faints on live TV, still finishes interview


Before I write anything else, she’s fine.

A TV reporter in Utah had a little mishap on live TV and she says it is not unusual.

KUTV reporter Brooke Graham passed out while conducting a live interview about cross country skiing at Mountain Dell Golf Course.

As she was introducing her guests and setting up the segment Graham’s voice began to tail off and she fell backwards with a thud.

“This is not the first time I have passed out cold,” Graham wrote on her blog. “I am known to faint any time I am in high altitudes and get too cold. (So does my twin sister Britt).”

Amazingly Graham quickly regained her composure, while admitted she had no clue how long she was out, and finished the interview while sitting in the snow.

“After I went down I sat up and had no idea how long I had been out but saw the camera pointed at my face and decided to keep on talking!”

Graham has been a good sports about it realizing this type of incident, caught on camera, will certainly spread like wildfire.

She joked about it on Twitter writing, “If you want your phone to be ringing straight for 72 hours just pass out on live TV,” and giving her employer permission to post it on YouTube.

She even says, “Don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle.”

Thank you because I was feeling a little guilty.
